Time for a sneak peek

As promised here I am with the first sneak peek of the new launch from Crafter's Companion. There are 12 stamps and a CD called Winter Cheer and they will be launched as the Pick of the Week on Create and Craft next Friday 14 October. The DT will be bringing you sneak peeks every day until then and tomorrow there will be a bloghop and you won't want to miss that so hop back here at 9am tomorrow.

My card would be just be a perfect Christmas card for that special older person in your life. I wish my dear Grandma were still here as she would have loved this. The image is coloured with Spectrum Noirs and highlighted with a Sakura gold star pen and I used DI Victorian Velvet around the image and glossy accents on her glasses. The paper is from the CD printed onto decoupage paper from CC. Flower and leaves made with Marianne dies and sprayed with Spray and Sparkle.

Blogger seems to have been playing up a bit this week as I keep leaving comments which don't appear. When I check back some are there and some are not so apologies if I appear not to have visited but I have done a lot of visiting and commenting this week.
Challenges:
Delightful Make it dimensional
